It’s been a very long, four day weekend. For the most part, we’ve been trapped in the house due to the weather. The kids were able to get outside a few times and play in the snow for a little while.
Outside of those brief excursions, we’ve been cooped up and people are getting antsy.
Unfortunately, there’s not much to do at the moment and trying to get anyone to agree to do anything together has proven difficult. Today would be a perfect movie marathon day but no one wants to watch a movie. We could play board games but no one wants to do that either.
Everyone is on edge because as with any long weekend, routines get disrupted. It’s not that they don’t enjoy being home or that we don’t enjoy having them, it’s just that the change throws some of us off kilter.
I’m struggling on my end with anxiety that just won’t quit.
Lizze is still struggling with her migraine and while I do have some important updates on that coming, she’s not yet found any relief.
The overwhelming feeling in the house is blah with a side order of blah. We’ll find our way out because we always do but I’m not feeling very positive about anything at the moment. That’s not to say there aren’t positive things happening here, it’s just that I’m sorta in a rut and need to get out from underneath some of what life has piled on top of me.
That said, my focus today is distraction. I need to keep myself distracted from the things causing me undo anxiety and help to keep everyone else distracted from their’s as well.
Once we get out of the single digits, I also need to dig us out from the snow storm. I think we ended up with about eight inches of snow but there’s a ton of ice as well. We had snow, then freezing rain, more snow, more freezing rain and then more snow. It’s going to be a bit harder than it looks but it needs to get done and it’s not going to shovel itself.
Hope everyone is staying warm.
